"Stephanie Thompson is one of the best PR practitioners I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She has all of the qualities you want in a publicist: a strategist, knowledgeable about what she is promoting, the media contacts to get your story out there, superior writing and communication acumen, tenacity and drive. Stephanie secured tens of thousands of dollars in print, Internet and broadcast coverage enabling Moonlight Stage Productions to be top of mind. Her relationships with the media are outstanding and one never has to worry you’re not being taken care of."

Even with the most minimal fragments of information, she is able to confect and broadcast a public awareness for her clientele that is effective, timely and concise. Stephanie has this uncanny gift of being able to connect with her clients, develop a laser sharp sense of what they need to convey to the masses and knows exactly where to go to do it. She knows her craft, creatively uses her available resources and delivers every single time."
